Hope Pro 4: Behind the Hubs - Video
From the Hope Website: Downhill rear hub – Available Jan 2016 With many DH riders using short 7 speed cassettes, we saw a potentially missed opportunity to improve the strength of rear wheels. Our new DH rear hub moves the drive-side spoke flange out to the shortened cassettes, allowing a far wider flange spacing over a standard hub, leading to a stiffer wheel build. The hub will accept either our 7 speed cassette, a custom 7 speed cassette built up from individual sprockets, or a Sram 7 speed DH cassette. It’s also supplied in either 150/157 or 135 (demo 8 ) widths. You got your wish!

First Ride: Cane Creek DBCoil Shock Gets a Climb Switch
Before you judge 27.5+ give it a go. It kills me that the industry has a new standard (with both new forks and axle spacings, help us lord) but I got to ride a demo 27.5+ hardtail and I gotta say it was incredibly fun. It had so much grip, but rolled much faster than a fat bike. I know most pinkbike readers are racing for strava KoM's, but I actually enjoy riding my bike, and 27.5+ is fun. So much fun.

Specialized S-Works Enduro 650B - Review
I tend to think most of the specialized enduro reviews were conducted by people used to riding steep 100mm travel XC bikes. Ive ridden several, and in a back to back ride the norco sight kills it in descendability. The enduro might be the most overrated bike I've ever ridden.

Australian National Downhill Series: Round 1 - You Yangs
Yeah yeah well we're the flattest continent on earth what do you expect? Even in Australia that's not considered a hardcore track. Wait until the Toowoomba round for some real DH.

Good to see pinkbike isn't as sexist as I thought and is just as happy to tell a bloke he looks alright ;)

Video: Controls Sorted - Fundamental Cockpit Setup and a Burly Crash
My tip with lever angle is to get into rider attack position resting against a wall. Grip the bar with all fingers (including braking fingers) and rotate your hand around the bar back and forth until you find the sweet spot where everything feels natural. Put your index finger out, and thats where your brake should be, so its inline with where your fingers fall naturally. Try it, its helped heaps of my riding pals. The real crime is having the left and right levers at different angles.

Video: Luca Cometti vs Special Edition 951 Evo DVO
gnralized, that production cost might be accurate, but it wouldn't include development which is what we pay for in mountain biking. From every single person I have ever spoken to in bike retail those margins you've quoted are utter rubbish. Everyone winges that they can't afford what is essentially a formula 1 car of bicycles. The great thing about this sport is there are many many lower end bikes with 90% of the performance for 50% of the money.
